Protea Livingstone, Zambia: Free-er than Free

An Instagram follower (of which I have inexplicably so few ) asked if my trip was sponsored by Protea.

Protea Cape Town Waterfront: A Prison, Hotel, And Business School All in One

Protea is to points as the rand is to dollar. The value is exceptional. I booked two separate stays at Protea Cape Town Breakwater and here's what I found: 

Protea Seapoint: That’s An Ocean View?

I checked into the Protea Sea Point which is located in the affluent Sea Point neighborhood minutes away from the Protea Waterfront, aka Prison/Business School. The hotel costs 5,000 more points, but the rooms are nicer and the location gives travelers an opportunity to experience more than the Waterfront.

Protea Franschhoek: Beautiful Place to Stumble Upon

Stumbling back to the Protea Franschhoek after a day of perhaps too much wine and too much dine, I reflected on how great life was.

Fairfield Inn New York Financial District: Just Another NY Hotel

Let's start with the basics: is this hotel worth $700 a night? No. Indeed, it isn't bold statement to say that any Fairfield anywhere in the world is worth $700 a night.

Renaissance NY Hotel 57th: Only 57th by Name

When you think of Manhattan hotels, you think of midtown and the area around 57th Street. There you will find The Four Seasons, The Plaza, the flagship Park Hyatt NYC, The St. Regis New York, and Parker New York, formerly Hotel Review: Le Parker Méridien.

Residence Inn Downtown Manhattan: Where Bachuwa Law Began

I'm beginning to believe that I will stay at every single Marriott, SPG, and Hyatt in NY. Ideally, I would prefer to stay at the same hotel when I go to NY for work, but the fluctuations in hotel prices make that impossible.

Marriott Skopje: A Lot of Luxury for So Little

The hotel is located right in the heart of the city center, in the midst of a million monuments (see Statues Skopje: Why So Many?) and right across the bridge from the Old Bazaar. If you're in Skopje for one day as I was, it is the ideal place to stay.
